"We held a joint seminar of UNSCO UNITWIN hosted university with Sookmyung Women's University at 3 p.m. on 29 at the National Assembly building," said the Handong university on 31.


The seminar was organized by Handong University and Sookmyung Women's University and sponsored by the Ministry of Education and organized jointly by Park Joo-sun, vice speaker of the National Assembly, Ahn Min-seok's office, Do Jong-hwan's office. Sixty-three people attended the meeting, including Handong University President Chang Soon-heung, Ahn Min-seok, former Minister of Finance and Industry Park Jae-yoon, LaChantabon, minister of education at Laos, and former Minister of Construction Mecuria Haile.


Under the theme of "Strategies for Education Cooperation to Achieve UN Sustainable Development Goals - Focused on Cases of Korean Universities," the seminar discussed the need for higher education institutions to participate in achieving Sustainable Development Goals and ways for Korean universities to contribute in the extension of existing educational cooperation activities at Korean universities.


It also discussed the contents and know-how of cooperation with higher education institutions in developing countries, and the direction of development of international development cooperation projects through educational cooperation, before being presided over by former Finance Minister Park Jae-yoon.


In addition, the announcement was made under the theme of "Introduction and Strategy of UNITWIN Business at Handong University" by Professor Ahn Jin-won, and "Introduction of ICT and Women's Rights" by Professor Kim Myung-hee of Sookmyung Women's University, and "UNESCO UNIT and SDGs" by Robert Farooa, a professor of education at UNESCO's office in Beijing.


As an institution of higher education in Korea, Handong University will strive to strengthen capabilities of developing countries with its long experience in international development and related knowledge accumulated, said Chang Soon-heung, president of Handong University.

Rep. Ahn Min-seok of the main opposition Minjoo Party of Korea said, "We will actively promote the achievements of the two universities that contribute to the development of the nation by promoting capacity in developing countries through the Unitwin project," adding, "We will make efforts to support the National Assembly in the future."


UNESCO's Untwin program was established in 1992. The purpose of the project is to help universities and research institutes in developing countries by networking with universities in developing countries to reduce the knowledge gap and develop self-reliance capabilities. In 2007, Handong University was designated as Korea's first Untwin university, followed by Sookmyung Women's University in 2014 and Korea Broadcasting and Communications University in 2017.

Handong Units' Twin project is implemented as part of the Ministry of Education's ODA project. We have concluded agreements with universities in developing countries that are subject to government-designated key cooperation, centering on low-income countries categorized by the World Bank, and have promoted university capacity building, leadership development projects, and regional development projects.
